The simplest techniques can have the most profound effect on patient progress.
In regards to patients with neurological deficits, behavioral challenges, autism, sensory processing problems, learning disabilities, and ADHD…
These seemingly small changes can be a catalyst for an increase in developmental success.
Unfortunately, many therapists lack the up-to-date knowledge and methodology that can boost patient progress consistently.
While some therapists find success in their techniques, others struggle to keep the progress steady.
This leaves patients stalling in their progress and results in frustration for all patients, families and therapists alike. And may even worsen the behavior or neurological health of patients...
Perhaps, you’re experiencing something similar...
…you find yourself struggling to find answers, many of which are unproven solutions that may actually put your patient and entire practice at risk.
Often times, the solution to increasing patient progress is something small, such as the implementation of an exercise or simply knowing more methods proven to help patients.
Today, Dr. Karen Pryor, PHD, PT, DPT invites you to discover the missing link you need to achieve the results you desire and the patient satisfaction you know they deserve with the help of neuroplasticity techniques…
In this online course, she’ll guide you in discovering new methods that you can implement immediately to better treat neurological damage, traumatic brain injuries, genetic abnormalities, behavior responses, autism, learning disabilities and more.
With a blend of hands-on activities, detailed discussion, and results-backed case studies, you can start using simple techniques that’ll lead to an increase of developmental success, all in her valuable training.
